Tag Archives: staying alert!


Before turning into that street,

He shuts off the radio bleat…

Once on post

Silent’s the most

Advantageous during his beat!

Security had a radio,

To which the client said “NO”…

Stay alert–

By a ball game we’re hurt,

If an intruder comes and you don’t know!

I type with eyes on the screens,

Closed Circuit video streams…

Staying alert

And looking won’t hurt,

By any and all worthy means!

The coffee pot looks dead,

“I drank all the coffee,” he said…

Wrote poems a lot

Right on the spot,

Tonight I’ll sleep like the dead!

Just now a fine-figured red,

Named Karen came for a short stead…

Picking up a flash drive

Then back to the hive,

I wish she liked poetry read!

Been working on a large bacon pizza

Since noon to constantly eat some…

Two liter-sized

Soda comprised

My fluid supply to tweak some.

Writing and blogging all day,

Lots of time here for play…

Keeps mind in gear

But fingers I fear

May need a rest Sunday!

Stevie says that by eight-thirty

He’ll relieve me from my hurting…

Meanwhile I’ll strive

To be alert and alive,

Until to my rescue he’s hurtling.
